Greater Charlotte Knee Pain Centers – Restoring Your Quality of Life!
Knee Pain Relief in the Greater Charlotte, SC Area
Knee pain is a common ailment that can be the result of weight, age, injury, overusing and/or improper form during physical activities. Determining the main cause of your knee pain will allow you to begin a custom treatment plan designed specifically for you by our healthcare professionals. There are a number of treatments available, both surgical and nonsurgical.
Osteoarthritis of the knee is another common form of pain which can lead to disability in older adults. This disease is caused by the lack of lubrication in the joints, which causes the bones to rub against one another. This can then cause extreme irritation and pain. Cartilage is the rubber-like tissue that protects the ends of bones, and when it begins deteriorating, it causes joint fluid – called Hyaluronan and Synovial Membrane fluid – to lose its “shock-absorbing” qualities and bones start to rub against one another.
Cartilage deterioration can be a slow, gradual process, with symptoms hard to detect in the early stages of this disease. The more common symptoms include:
– Joint pain around the knees, fingers, hips, and spine
– Stiffness, often occurring in the morning
– Bone spurs
– Grating or crackling sensation
Knee pain of any kind does not have to be your way of life. For more information on how the treatment plans at the Greater Charlotte Knee Pain Centers can help you.
